Hot SpringsEAccommodations
As the Japanese saying goes, gFamous mountains have famous hot springsh, Omachi is host to some superb spas. First of all is the Omachi Hot Spring Village. The snow melt of the Northern Alps flows down in clear streams, and along the Alpine line 16 hotels and traditional inns feature hot spring bathing facilities. The beautiful forests of larch, red pine and birch covering the majestic mountain ranges of the Northern Alps provide a backdrop to your experience here. The inns and hotels here are widely distributed, giving ample space for your body and mind to relax fully.
One famous hot spring is Kuzu Hot Spring. It is said that historically the hot spring has been under the control of a powerful family since the Middle Ages. The water from this hot spring is reputed to have superior benefits for onefs health, and even now you cab see the billows of steam rising from the shallows of the narrow valley. From spring buds, to the fresh green of new leaves, to the autumn colors and the snow-capped scenery of winter, each of the 3 lodgings have outdoor baths designed especially for viewing the changes of the seasons.
